Goodwill Needs Donations
Because of the economic climate, donations to Goodwill are down, while the demand for our employment and training programs remains high. Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina is urging people to donate clothing and other items to their nearest Goodwill retail store or donation center.
“Donations to Goodwill allow us to provide job training, employment placement services and other community based programs to people with disabilities, those who lack education or work experience and others facing challenges to finding employment,” says Jaymie Eichorn, VP of Marketing and Communications. “In the last year, we helped more than 7,000 people in northwest North Carolina find jobs and support their families – the community’s support is vital to this effort.”
Items most wanted right now include clothing for men, women and children and linens. Also needed are various household items, including small kitchen appliances, glasses and dishware.
